...I've been following indications for awhile that democracy as practiced in the post-industrial world is increasingly under threat; in February of this year, I wrote a piece ("Fear of Teratocracy") that explored the increasing attacks not just on the policies of leaders, but the on very legitimacy of leaders. In this world, it's not enough to say that your opponent is wrong, you have to say that your opponent simply has no right to lead. As democracy depends on the losers stepping aside gracefully as much as the winners ruling fairly, I tried to be clear in saying that attacks on the legitimacy of opponents were implicit attacks on democracy itself...

David Suzuki speaks at Occupy Vancouver with Details to substantiate the atrocities subjected by the 99% by the 1%.

The Occupy Wall Street movement - the story has moved on, but can the media keep up?

In one of the few interviews that Marshall McLuhan granted before his death in 1980, he talks to TVO host Mike McManus about modern regionalism and separatism, nostalgia, violence and identity, television as an addictive tranquillizer, propaganda and his reasons for becoming a Roman Catholic.

Reports from the Bibliographic Bunker

Mass protest against Vietnam war in Washington DC, on mall, across Potomac river to Pentagon, MPs with bayonets emerge from Pentagon, tear gas used, next day camp fires burn on the 2nd day of sitting-in

Tribute to Loukanikos aka Riot Dog, whose name derives from λουκάνικο (loukaniko - Greek for sausage), a dog that has been present at nearly every protest in downtown Athens in the past few years. The stray has become the symbol of the Greek protests against the IMF and the EU backed austerity measures that are taking place in 2011

A revolution is coming to America.. Not Just America but the World, people are waking up and finally realising how the world works and that their rights as free human beings are slowly being taken away from them.. The 99% are rising up!

WE ARE REVOLUTION! Worldwide Uprising!
People are rising up all over the globe... its a Worldwide Revolution!!!!

He was an acolyte of Aleister Crowley, an employee of Howard Hughes, a victim of L. Ron Hubbard, and an enthusiastic phone buddy to Wernher Von Braun.
"...In one of the most celebrated feats in magickal history, Parsons and pre-Dianetics L. Ron Hubbard…performed The Babalon Working, a daring attempt to shatter the boundaries of time and space and intended to bring about, in Parsons own words, “love, understanding, and Dionysian freedom…the necessary counterbalance or correspondence to the manifestation of Horus”…Babalon, a Thelemic counterpart of Kali or Isis, was described by Parsons as “black, murderous and horrible, but Her hand is uplifted in blessing and reassurance: the reconciliation of opposites, the apotheosis of the impossible.” The impossible was precisely what Jack Parsons, the scientific sorcerer, had in mind.” (Richard Metzger)
Simultaneous with his more material scientific pursuits, he also tried with painstaking ritual — but apparently failed — to create a “Moon Child,” a magic being conjured via mystic ritual who would usher in a new age of unfettered liberty and signal the end of the Christian era and its outmoded morality. (Reason)..."

"Eurydice in a Used Car Lot. Margaret Travis paused in the empty foyer of the cinema, looking at the photographs in the display frames. In the dim light beyond the curtains she saw the dark-suited figure of Captain Webster, the muffled velvet veiling his handsome eyes. The last few weeks had been a nightmare - Webster with his long-range camera and obscene questions. He seemed to take a certain sardonic pleasure in compiling this one-man Kinsey Report on her . . . positions, planes, where and when Travis placed his hands on her body - why didn’t he ask Catherine Austin? As for wanting to magnify the photographs and paste them up on enormous billboards, ostensibly to save her from Travis . . . She glanced at the stills in the display frames, of this elegant and poetic film in which Cocteau had brought together all the myths of his own journey of return. On an impulse, to annoy Webster, she stepped through the side exit and walked past a small yard of cars with numbered windshields. Perhaps she would make her descent here. Eurydice in a used car lot?"

"The Concentration City. In the night air they passed the shells of concrete towers, blockhouses half buried in rubble, giant conduits filled with tyres, overhead causeways crossing broken roads. Travis followed the bomber pilot and the young woman along the faded gravel. They walked across the foundation of a guard-house into the weapons range. The concrete aisles stretched into the darkness across the airfield. In the suburbs of Hell Travis walked in the flaring light of the petrochemical plants. The ruins of abandoned cinemas stood at the street corners, faded billboards facing them across the empty streets. In a waste lot of wrecked cars he found the burnt body of the white Pontiac. He wandered through the deserted suburbs. The crashed bombers lay under the trees, grass growing through their wings. The bomber pilot helped the young woman into one of the cockpits. Travis began to mark out a circle on the concrete target area."

On Oct. 18th, 2011 the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court handed down their decision in the Francis J. Bevilacqua, III vs. Pablo Rodriguez – and in a moment, essentially made foreclosure sales in the commonwealth over the last five years wholly void. However, some of the more polite headlines, undoubtedly in the interest of not causing wide spread panic simply put it “SJC puts foreclosure sales in doubt” or “Buyer Can’t Sue After Bad Foreclosure Sale“
In essence, the ruling upheld that those who had purchased foreclosure properties that had been illegally foreclosed upon (which is virtually all foreclosure sales in the last five years), did not in fact have title to those properties.

Exiled journalist describes the threats and intimidation directed against the local press.

The Revolution Has Already Begun, but you stayed home brother
You are not watching it on tv, because you do not know what channel it is on
You are watching nascar, and vampires and crime procedurals
You are watching snookie and suze orman and bloomberg
You would rather be voting on American idol and x factor.

The revolution is televised, but you are not watching

The revolution is taking place right now, brother.
It is happening in the streets of Greece,
Where the World Bank and the European Central Bank
Are demanding as "some sensible austerity measures"
A more radical deconstruction of a socialist government
Than Ron Paul and the Tea Party could ever hope for.

The revolution is televised, but you are not watching

The revolution is brought to you by Adbusters from Canada
Who printed some high-art posters for a publicity stunt
With a dancer on the brass bull, called Occupy Wallstreet,
But then the Canadians were surprised when the
Real revolutionaries showed up and wanted to actually protest.
The revolution is not a publicity stunt for anyone.

The revolution is not going to have Walter Cronkite or Tom Brokaw
as the commentator, telling you what it means to you.
It took to long to come, Walter is Dead, and Tom is Retired.

The revolution is televised, but you are not watching

Anderson Cooper doesn't know what it means.
Glen Beck doesn't know what it means.
MSNBC and Fox and CNN will ask the man in the street
Because that's the best they can do, and they will still not understand.
You will be more likely to get an explanation of the revolution
From John Stewart or even Joel McHale, if you are even watching.

The revolution will take place in locations you cannot locate on a map.
It is taking place in the Wisconsin statehouse, and in Tunisia.
It is taking place in Egypt, in Libya, and Zuccotti Park.
It is taking place in Iceland and Ireland, and the Security Council.
There will not common theme and coherent plot line.
There will not be a explanation of the mysteries at the end of each episode. There will not be a big reveal at the end of the season.

The revolution is televised, but you are not watching

The revolutionaries are calling for the dismantling of government
The revolutionaries are calling for the dismantling of globalization
The revolutionaries watched too damn much sesame street, and are calling for the dismantling of everything that begins with the letter "G."

The revolutionaries want us to return to an 18th century ideal that has
Been re-discovered in histories written by a wealthy dead white 1%.
Because in the 18th century, the 99% were illiterate and actually worse off
than they are now, but the revolutionaries do not remember that.

The revolution is televised, but you are not watching

The revolution will not be islamist, or capitalist, or socialist, or progressive,
or any kind of "ist" or "ism" except perhaps for anarchist.
The revolution is opposed to everything the revolutionaries hold dear.
The revolution is against government regulation.
The revolution is against cheap global credit.
The revolution is against taxation of any kind.
The revolution is against cheap globally produced goods.
The revolution is against government services
The revolution is against corporations

The revolution is televised, is televised, IS TELEVISED,
But you are not watching
